and another thing, i’m totally amazed by how readily people dismiss the dialogue between tauriel and kili in mirkwood as just being “romance”? like, i think an incredibly important aspect of kili’s character is revealed in his conversation with tauriel in mirkwood.
kili specifically mentions how he thought a moon, a fire moon in dunland to be beautiful, more beautiful than the starlight he finds cold and distant. kili is able to see beauty infire, to look at something reminiscent of flame and see beauty, awe and wonder. in contrast, thorin never forgave and he never forgot. to him, fire is a constant reminder of the home he lost and the inheritance stolen from him by smaug. when thorin sees fire, he sees dragonfire and in turn, ruin, destruction, sorrow, grief.
when kili sees fire, he can see beauty. kili is not thorin and is not like thorin. the only time we hear thorin sound fond of something, sound longing, is when he first enters erebor in DoS or speaks of the gold stored away there. kili can see beauty in that which is not golden, in that simple fire moon over dunland.
oooops i just dropped a bowl and smashed it (on the plus side i don’t have to wash it up and i have three others so it’s not a big deal but still whoops) (also it’s the first thing i’ve smashed in three years but still whoops)
but it probably wouldn’t have happened if my housemate wasn’t washing up and drying her things one by one. like you could free up the sink in half the time if you just washed everything first and then dried it so you know??????
so just fyi
in an effort to be more productive i’ve basically blocked tumblr from 10am until 4pm every day including weekends so that’s why i won’t be on during those times
and then after those times, i’ve just started playing assassin’s creed 2 and i’m really into it at the moment so a lot of my free time will be going on that
and also i’m watching a bunch of let’s plays so more of my free time will be spent on those
and also writing and shit and i’m gonna spend more time reading as well
so that’s why i won’t be on tumblr very much, but i will still be checking in probably nearly every night just briefly. so i might not reblog much but i am here.
